Hi , there will be a grip, they generally dont come out straight away, i'd say around August/September, the camera it self wont be available till mid june, i think.

And you are basing this claim on what? Previous releases? As mentioned earlier, there are no physical signs that it will allow a batterygrip.

Or have you heard anything else?

Nothing that photo of the battery door suggests to me that the door cannot be removed. The camera is way too small for many of us and most will be attaching large lenses that require balance. Folks that shoot video need more battery life. Battery grips are extremely high margin items. I cannot say with authority that there will be one but if they don't it would be a one of their biggest blunders. I expect it to be available eventually.

I remember I had a 350D or whatever it was called in those days. The door didn't need to be removed before slotting on the grip. It just went vertically inside an empty compartment of the grip. So this should be a problem at all.

Oh yeah, I remember those grips, so yes, this itself is not a deal breaker by itself
